to the failure of, for the federal government to give money to the states in this time of crisis, which president obama supported. but you know, i think you'd see independent women, as i said before, a growing block of women, not just progressives are democrats, democratic women, could you worry about the fact that their daughter, for example, might not have access to planned parenthood, which, by the way, is really about women's health, mammograms, and not just these hot-button issues of reproductive choice. so i do think the independent women voters are the canary in the coal mined in terms of the seeing a republican party that is not hospitable or open to women's health rights, and linked to that in order to control your economic destiny you need to control your health. host: michael is a political science major. >> i will begin with the article that ran on "the nation" frontpage. why have appointments gone by the wayside in this election? guest: president obama has faced obstruction but has not been as engaged with putting forward judges. by the way, the supreme court today may be years 2% of
's happened in our government in recent years and has continued up until now is a breakdown in the trust among our people and the -- >> don't adjust your set. this is what it was like live. hold on for just a second. this is what it was like for people watching the debate that night. [ silence ] >> the pool broadcaster from philadelphia have temporarily lost the audio. it is not a conspiracy against governor carter or president ford. they will fix it as soon as possible. >> the pool audio from philadelphia has been lost momentarily. we hope to have it back any minute. we don't know what's happened to it. >> it took 27 minutes to get that sound back. so the first time we had incumbent president face his challenger on tv in a debate in american history, it was totally novel to the country, it had never happened before, and the verdict to the extent that there was any clear winner or not, nobody really seemed to think there was a clear winner. frankly, it was almost beside the point. everybody was distracted with what went wrong, technically, 27 minutes of silence all blamed on this tiny little c
to be put in to a situation where you have a government determining somebody who wants to put the idea up on television can't do that. that's one of the things with the campaign finance is that it's what to nay say about democracy is the worst form of government except for the worst form of government. the campaign finance system may not look perfect. when you look at the alternative i don't know they are god either. i don't know if it's a good to have the department of justice to determine he can't run television ads. ic you should be able to do that. i think it's a first amendment right. when you move to the constitutional right it starts getting ugly. >> yeah. we don't -- even or side there's been money in elections for forever. lots of money. going back as long as with can. we can go back to george washington and the night before. there was tails of flying rum and beer and the voice rang out the day 6 election day. how to they got out of the book. there's been money and things in politics for as long as we know. i don't think either side of a necessarily thinks the money itself and ha
private individuals acting without government stores and will make the world a much better place. that is our show. i'm john stossel. good night. ♪ lou: good evening, everybody. the political and media world reverberating with a shock wave of the romney victory in last night's presidential debate in denver. dominating throughout, governor romney may well have turned the race for the white house, an entirely new and unexpected direction. president obama is tonight seemingly less the object of sympathy than the target of harsh criticism from left wing of luminaries upset with his lackluster and at times seemingly detached performance. the new york times today wrote, there are two more chances for the president to change tactics were to at least show up to the debate. president xanax just doesn't cut it. the "washington post" has written, if the obama campaign was worried about them is being overconfident going into the final stretch, tonight should allay those fears. chris matthews wind, where was obama tonight? well, his nbc colleague ed schultz admitted he was absolutely stunne
folks down in new orleans, implying because they're black. that the federal government, the rest of us, apparently, did not care about the folks in the once in 2005. that, of course, then senator barack obama talking on the fifth of june. in 2007, that video obviously very, very well documented. the current president's view before a mostly black audience of ministers that the country just doesn't care as much about our black citizens as we do other citizens, specifically knew well as residents. what i wanted to do tonight is but a few facts forward. get into the issue of all of the nonsense in. but faugh precisely what the aue said, and you decide why he chose to leave information out, why he did not tell them a number of things, why he did not tell them, for example, that less than two weeks before he gave that speech on the fifth of june that he, in fact, had not voted to rave the stafford act in question. on the 24th of may of that same year he voted against the waiver. which would, of course, have permitted no responsibility on the part of state and local governments to provide one
by the government. on the other hand, 9/11 survivors and those impacted by hurricane andrew, they received endless government assistance. watch this. >> i want to give you one example because this really steams me up. this isn't in the prepared remarks...: down in new orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later. there is a federal law when you get... reconstruction money from the federal government, called the stafford act. basically tsays, when you get federal money, have to give a 10% match, the local government's got to come up with 10%. every $10 the federal government comes up with, the local government's got to give a dollar. now, here's the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city...: they waived the stafford act, said, this is too serious a problem. we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar you have to put in. that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation! we don't expect to you come up with the money. here! here's the money to rebuild. we are not going to wait for to you scrat
provides response and defense against cyber attacks for the federal civilian part of the government, the dot.gov domains, last year it responded to more than 106,000 incident reports and released more than 5,000 cybersecurity alerts to our public and private partners. specialized dhs teams conducted 78 assessments of vulnerable industrial control systems, the possible gateway to a catastrophic attack. the word "cybersecurity" encompasses a broad range of malicious activity from denial of service attacks to the theft of intellectual process to intrusions against government networks and systems that control our critical infrastructure. last year, for example, a water plant for a small town in texas disconnected its control system from the internet after a hacker posted pictures of the facility's internal controls. more recently, cyber attackers penetrated the networks of companies that operate natural gas pipelines. and computer systems in critical sectors of the economy including the financial, nuclear and chemical industries are increasingly targeted. we also face a range of traditi
government and the position they find themselves in , presumably, they would want to stop this. >> certainly, they don't want to get embroiled in a bilateral fight with the syrian regime on the ground. that has been clear from the beginning. there is a concerted nato division -- if there were a concerted nato decision to intervene, then turkey would support that, but it does not want to fight on its own . the dangers are evident. on the other hand, it is spilling across their border. they have tens of thousands of refugees to cope with and now they have their own citizens been killed on their own soil. so they felt clearly they had to respond to that. i suspect they will keep it to a minimum at the moment and yet keep open the option of hitting back harder if they feel they have to. >> thank you very much. could it be a moment which perhaps turns the u.s. presidential election campaign > -- ? the first televised debate has been widely judged a triumph for mitt romney, who had been lagging in opinion polls. he has often been called stiff and awkward in public, judy big -- yet he appeared more
again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with heed lookers who write-off half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% people of the people -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's remarks into a devastating new ad playing the words under the faces of families and veterans. >> and they will vote for this president no matter what. so my job is not worry about those people. they should take personal responsibility. >> reporter: romney who has courted veterans two days in a row. he's seizing on new economic data. from 1.7% to 1.3. >> this is not just one quarter. this has been going on now for years. china is growing much faster than we, russia is growing faster than we. our economy needs to be reinvigorated. >> reporter: the labor department announced it undercounted nearly 400,000 jobs in 2011. meaning that 4.4 million jobs have been created since inauguration. but the president said there's still more work to do. >> we're not w

of europe. france's new socialist government unveiling plans for a 75% super tax. stuart varney host of "varney & company", fox business network. glad you're happy you left 35 years ago. what's up? >> germany is telling france hey, you got to get that budget deficit under control, big budget deficit is verboten the socialist president of france, francois hollande, tax the rich, not so rich, capital gains, profits, you name it, there will be a big new tax. on upper end of income every dollar over a certain level the french government will take 75 cents. rip it right out of your hand. 75 cents on the dollar. more than $200,000, they take 45 cents on the dollar, almost half. bill, this is a massive gamble because france's economy is dead flat, teetering on recession. 10-year high for unemployment and france puts in place huge tax increases. bill: i'm reading the two measures bringing around half a billion euros. >> that's it. >> what will that do for them? >> not much. there are other taxes as well which will bring in a total they think of 20 billion euros. bill: higher tax rates on div
government had lied to you about the attacks in egypt and libya when they claimed they were acts of a spontaneous mob in reaction to a youtube video. i said then and i repeat now, i normally would not have used such strong language and made such a bold declaration but the continuing revelations confirm that my statement was not an exaggeration. our government has lied to us. they did it knowingly. our ambassador to libya isn't dead because of some film. he is dead because we failed to heed the warnings that an attack was imminent. it took the administration two weeks to acknowledge that this was a carefully planned terrorist attack. egyptian president new it and white house knew it but ours wasn't honest with it and tried to continue the official story about it that this was all about a film that insulted moe78d. real question why would the administration embarrass itself by hoisting such a whopper on us and then thinking we wouldn't find out the truth? why would they hold a memorial for the slain ambassador and not respect that his was not an accidental death from an overheated
about the role of government he talked about caring for people who are less fortunate. >> not scaring. i got to get out. steve we're going to have you back again. love to have you back. jennifer's going to hang around for awhile for the full show tonight. i want to switch gears. this goes to what we were talk about. will mitt romney's performance last evening be enough to swing voters? my next guest was one of chicago's most influential obama supporters back in 2008. in this election cycle she has switched gears to support mitt romney. susan crown now cochair of illinois for romney. she's a member of the national finance team for the romney campaign. all right, susan, welcome to the show. >> thank you. >> what made you switch to the romney camp? >> several things. i became increasingly disillusioned and disappointed, and actually pretty angry when obama came out with his 67 borders comments about israel. and i just felt that he wasn't up to the job. >> and i notice -- i read the big story that was about you. you're not happy with the deficit plans, you're not happy with the tax plans. bu
that the american plan to hand over to a credible, stable afghan government will work. these village elders tell me once u.s. troops leave, a civil war will begin, and u.s.-trained afghan forces will not be able to stop it. are you preparing for this fight? are you already stockpiling weapons and ammunition and getting yourself ready? "yes, we are. we will definitely fight," he says. and what about the afghan government? it's meaningless here, they say. you think it's possible that the taliban will try and come back? "yes, they will," he says. "it it makes a decades worth of american battles seem futile. it wasn't always like this. >> the united states military has begun strikes. >> reporter: at first -- >> one, two, three! >> reporter: -- the war had momentum. and a clear purpose. al qaeda with bases in afghanistan attacked the united states on 9/11. just three months later, the u.s. drove the taliban from power. al qaeda and osama bin laden were on the run. it was done with a few hundred cia officers, special forces and air power. a quick victory but not decisive. and then came the distraction of
because they're too good? >> what we're seeing right now in my view is a trickle-down government approach which thinks that government can do a better job than free people pursuing their dreams. >> it's thursday, october 4th, and "starting point" begins right now. >> good morning! welcome, everybody. our starting point this morning is the morning after debate night in america. both candidates are on the campaign trail today, again, after the first of three presidential debates, the first one, of course, in denver last night. president obama and mitt romney going toe to toe on critical issues, like the economy and health care. and by most accounts, it was mitt romney who emerged the victor. lots of debate analysis ahead on "starting point." we'll be talking live with john mccain of arizona and rand paul of kentucky. from team obama, we'll be speaking with martin o'malley and campaign spokeswoman, jen psaki. plus, obama's former economic adviser, austan goolsbee. first, though, a look at the instant reaction from the debate in the cnn/orc poll, of debate watchers taken right after the debat
austerity cuts. it was the third such protest in five days. on friday the government presented a draft budget that will cut overall spending by $40 billion euros. >> a small earthquake shaking suburb west of dallas saturday. no serious damage or injuries were reported. >> and some lifers in california could go free. governor jerry brown giving the okay to a law that can release them. >> gregg: shocking numbers, u.s. airlines raked in $2 billion in baggage ties during the first half of the year. that the largest amount ever collected for a six-month period. this as a new report emerges finding passengers are facing more fees than ever before and fewer choices. how about that? anything consumers can do. ed joins us managing partner of investment firm. rise of oil prices make a corresponding rise in jet fuel and 30% of operating costs for the airlines. are the airlines trying to make up for it in other ways like the fees? >> sure. look this is great lesson in economics. it's supply and demand and competition. when there is less competition. usually the quality goes down and prices go up.
. this as the spanish government is apparently ready to ask for a full bailout, but is being told to wait by germany. angela merkel is reluctant to put more aid requests in front of her parliament, both sides have denied that story. but it does come just a day after meeting between the eu and sm spanish economics minister. julia is in madrid with her own thoughts on this. you heard jim says it's only a matter of time really, so we just have to work out when. >>> that's certainly what the markets expect. also the message is that it's really difficult for the germans to say, hey, these three separate times on greece, cypress and perhaps on spain particularly after they've just received the banking bailout. the biggest shift seem to be in perhaps the spanish sentiment in this article that they're ready to ask as early as this week. so critical to him. they have to think of a bailout and also the enhanced credit line. it doesn't really make a distinction between the two. but of course the budget that we got at the end of last week suggested that they were laying the foundations of course for aid and of
of governing and one segment on the role of government in people's lives, john. so how this is going to be set up is that the candidates will be sitting at podiums. if you're looking at your tv screen, mitt romney on your left, president obama on your right. the first question tonight, john, goes to barack obama. >> well, will they have a chance to mix it up and rebutt each other in a free-flowing way. >> organizers hope to have a flee-flowing discussion. this is the kind discussion we like to see because it allows the two candidates to discuss it amongst themselves. if there are questions about each other's plans, they can directly ask each other that. we have not seen that in this campaign and we'll see it tonight. >> you said the economy will likely be the big subject in the debate tonight. we have new polling to give a sense of what voters are saying about this right now. >> it is, john. no surprise, people are very downtrodden about the economy. let's look at the new cnn poll just released coming on the air. it shows that 73% of americans believe that there is poor economic conditions rig
into january. what happens if we do? think of 1995. we have a government shut down. once the government shutdown, the pressure on both sides was so intense there was a deal in less than three weeks. the pressure when we go into january will be greater than it was then because the economic consequences if the market consequences are more significant. i think it is inconceivable that if we go into january there won't be a settlement in january, early february of the latest. we hit the debt ceiling in february anyway. there has to be a settlement. somebody will have to wait. probably both sides will link to some degree. i've talked a little that to people in financial markets in new york about how they think the markets would react to all this. there would be a lot of nervousness and a lot of volatility in the markets in january. if there is a deal with a few weeks on any deal, clearly retroactive to january 1st the tax cuts that have continued and will remove sequestration. then what i am being told is in the interim the dynamics won't be that significant. now, for the fiscal hawks, many
. instead of having a single government, trying to decide how to solve these problems, they have 17 countries in the euro zone, each one with its own parliament and politics. the process of making decisions has been very difficult. the problem, a very simple way of looking at the problem is that the 17 countries of the euro zone have single monetary policy. the european central bank and euro -- they have 17 different fiscal policies. they are not able to support each other during a period of recession which they are currently in. what is needed is some ongoing structural reforms that will, first of all, improve their cooperation and coordination on fiscal policy and they are trying to do that. the second very useful step would be what they are calling banking union which is making bank supervision, oversight, capitalization, responsibilities of europe as a whole and not of each individual country. in order to get to that point, they have to keep stability in the market and the ecb has done some very constructive things in terms of its financing operations, more recent proposals to t
his movements. meanwhile, the state department has pulled all u.s. government personnel out of benghazi. "the washington post" reports the consulate is closed, and locked up. but the scene of the deadly attack remains unguarded. >>> there's also word that the white house has held a series of secret meetings over the past few months, due to concern about the growing threat of al qaeda's north africa branch. "the post" reports that a part of the discussion is focused on potential u.s. military strikes against the group known as al qaeda in the islamic magreb. >>> huge heads up for those of you who purchased the new iphone 5. apple support forums online are being overloaded with complaints about a bug that drains cellular data usage even when phones are connected to wi-fi. now this is forcing people to blow through their data caps in a matter of days. apple has not publicly commented, but you know, it did already release a software upgrade, with a bug fix. >> go bears. chicago bears mauling the dallas cowboys on monday night football. the chicago defense intercepting tony romo

proud of my contributions to the recent cases in which the government argued in the supreme court to the constitution doesn't protect the right to abortion, samuel alito. but, the republican party of 1980 was not the republican party of today either and we saw that in the nomination to the supreme court. stuart unexpectedly announced his resignation, and he had made a campaign promise that jimmy carter didn't even make in the campaign. he said if i have the chance i will nominate the first woman to the supreme court, and he said look, i have my chance. find me a qualified woman. it wasn't a simple fix in those days because there were not a lot of women especially republican women in the traditional pipelines for the supreme court appointments, so his people went all the way to the intermediate appeals court in arizona, not even the arizona supreme court to find it remarkable figure who was and is of sandra day o'connor. sandra day o'connor was not a social conservative or religious conservative or anything like the kind of conservatives dominate the republican party now, and it wa
't have a driver's license, a government-issued photo i.d. could get the michigan state identification card. then the state said that can be used to board airplanes. we need all sorts of forms of identification. then the state changed its mind and said we'll issue a voter i.d. card that's different. only if you can't get the other card. then they changed their mind on that. the judge said i can't be sure. even though the state has now cured a lot of these problems, i can't be sure enough people are going to be able to get the right kind of identification to allow this law to go into effect. i'm going to let the state continue to educate people about the need for photo i.d. i'm going to let the state ask for photo i.d. atle positive, but enjoin the part of the law that requires voters to have photo i.d. people wanted it all put on hold. the judge said i don't need to go that far. there is always the possibility the state could go back to the supreme court on this, but begin how skeptical the supreme court was when they looked at this a few weeks ago, i think it's over. that means that t
of corporate america far more than i trust the government's balance sheet. this is hardly a reckless position and would encourage companies to reward shareholders by issuing and raising dividends. i would actually raise the tax make up for that lost revenue because i'm not irresponsible and reckless. i would actually raise the tax on capital gains. why? you get gains when you sell stocks. i don't want people to sell stocks. i want them to own stocks, not sell them. plus if you raised the tax on capital gains, the company that do these stupid buybacks would continue to do them, continue to waste is the shareholders' money like they do now. put the money in the owners' pockets, not the sellers' pockets, by encouraging saving, not flipping. point number two, we have to clean up these markets. clean up the markets and encourage people on the sidelines to come back in. make them. clean up the stables, like hercules. i would do that by appointing preet bharara as attorney general of the united states of america and have him go after all of these insider traders and crooks that populate the banks. t

whatever it wants with no government oversight whatsoever. the policies of starting a war here and a war there and a war there and never paying for it. the policies of giving the wealthiest of americans all the tax breaks while screwing the middle class. that's the choice. i thought president obama should have made -- as his campaign has, made that choice very, very clear in his opening statement and said you know, forward with me or backward with mitt. he didn't. and mitt romney, when he got his statement, he went right away and said that guy's been there for four years and look what a mess we're in and i can do it better. it was b.s. but he delivered it right into the camera in a very -- not convincing to me but in a very -- but in a better way -- we've never seen mitt romney better and i don't think -- i don't remember seeing president obama more disappointing. chris in chicago. joins us. hello, chris, good morning. what do you say? >> caller: good morning, bill. i blame you for this. you had no business travel
